London Transport MuseumLondon Category Museums & Galleries, For the Family
The Museum explores the powerful link between transport and the growth of modern London, its culture and society since 1800. Highlights include the iconic red London bus, the world’s first Underground steam train and the ‘padded cell’ – a train carriage dating back to the 1890s.
The Design for Travel gallery showcases pioneering advertising posters and artworks and the displays include Harry Beck’s original artwork for his ground breaking London Underground map, and the story of the development of the world famous ‘roundel’ transport logo.
The galleries are full of interactive exhibits for young people and adults alike to play on - including real buses and trains.
